What Nature Sounds Are Music?

November 17 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

$15

Bird song, whale song, bug song? Are these sounds really music? What of the whistle of the wind? David Rothenberg, author of three books, Why Birds Sing, Bug Music, and Survival of the Beautiful, will do his best to answer these questions and fuel further thinking about noise, communication, and song in nature. A composer and jazz clarinetist, David Rothenberg has written and performed on the relationship between humanity and nature for many years, and improvised with whales, cicadas, and other creatures.
